Lemon Meatballs

Lemon Meatballs

I have already prepared these lemon meatballs many times. Because they’re so good, simple to prepare and light to digest as there’s no garlic inside. I have to add that I love raw meat and that I use to eat meatballs while preparing them…and this recipe passed this “personal” test too ;-). Thyme gives them(…)

Zucchini and Eggs Baskets

Zucchini and Eggs Baskets

I love this zucchini and eggs baskets recipe. It is tasty, beautiful, easy to prepare and…light. I admit I wasn’t that confident when I first tried it, and it completely amazed me. Such a simple mix of simple ingredients can give such a cute and tasty result. I found this recipe in a Brazilian Instagram profile(…)

Chicken With Curry And Chickpeas

Chicken With Curry And Chickpeas

I decided to try this chicken with curry and chickpeas recipe because of my son, that loves both chicken and chickpeas. But, as often happens, we all liked it very much. It is a recipe that is perfectly tasty and spiced, even if I didn’t use caraway nor cardamom, present in the original recipe). It(…)

Granola, a Healthy Addiction

Granola, a Healthy Addiction

I first met granola in Brazil. Then in USA. In Italy it is not known yet, and I don’t understand why. We can’t find it here at common supermarkets. To be sincere, I’ve never seen granola here. So, the solution is to prepare it by myself. It is not a bad idea, as the ones we(…)

My Tomato Meat Sauce

My Tomato Meat Sauce

Why call it “my” tomato meat sauce? Because it is a story as long as the time I’ve been living in Italy… I came to live in Italy because I have followed my heart and married my husband, who is Italian. I was not just young, but very young. I came here with my recipes(…)

The Ikea Cookies

The Ikea Cookies

I decided to prepare these Ikea cookies not because Ikea’s ones, but because such an ensemble of tasty ingredients could only lead to a delicacy. It is curious how much almond I’ve been eating lately. They’re healthy, fortunately! I have never been fond of it, but it seems that there are such a lot of recipes(…)

Italian Meat Roll, My Version

Italian Meat Roll, My Version

This Italian meat roll will conquer your palate, I swear. As I use to say, I am “quite” a vegetarian, as I eat always less meat (even if, as my daughter says, we can’t become veggies because we can’t refuse Prosciutto…). If you already know my blog, you may have noticed how rarely I cook(…)

Herbs Bread With Feta Cheese

Herbs Bread With Feta Cheese

This herbs bread with feta cheese is…all you want when you arrive home hungry and want to eat something. It is what happened today when my son arrived. I had just cut this bread and ate the first slice with my daughter, as it was before lunch. He arrived hungry and ate about 3 slices! It(…)

Fried Eggplant Bites

Fried Eggplant Bites

These fried eggplant bites are …divine. Who knows me (or have read some more posts) knows that I rarely fry. It is really difficult that I cook something that has to be deep fried. So, if I decided to fry, it means it really deserves it. It is true that we love eggplants. It is always(…)

Courgette Flowers Pie

Courgette Flowers Pie

This courgette flowers pie conquered me immediately. First, for its beauty. After, for its versatility, as I ate it warm from the oven, at room temperature, and the last slice right from the fridge. And loved it each time. It means it can be prepared in advance, can be an idea for a pic nic,(…)
